Wihuri Research Institute Symposium 2024

We at the Wihuri Research Institute are committed to disseminating knowledge and convening leading researchers in our field. Wihuri Research Institute Symposium 2024 takes place on August 15 in Helsinki.

Since 2013, the Wihuri Research Institute (WRI) has been organizing the annual WRI Symposium. The 2024 Symposium, now in its 10th year, will bring together 120-150 researchers and students from various fields of cardiovascular research. The symposium facilitates the exchange of the latest technologies and ideas, and encourages interactions at multiple levels, from students to global leaders. Participants at the symposium benefit from an engaging program of lectures delivered by leading experts and junior investigators in cardiovascular biology and medicine.

The Wihuri Research Institute Symposium 2024 on
Vascular Specialization in Tissue Homeostasis and Disease
will take place on August 15 at the Hanaholmen Cultural Centre, Helsinki, Finland.

This year there will be a preceding Doctoral Program course (DPBM-225) on
Cardiovascular Biology: Mechanistic Insights and Translational Perspectives.
The course will take place on August 14 at the Biomedicum Helsinki 1, Finland.

The Symposium and the Course are free of charge for participants.

The WRI symposium is organized in collaboration with the Doctoral Programs in Biomedicine (DPBM) and Integrative Life Science (ILS), University of Helsinki.
